Remove Security Shield [Removal Guide]

Post by Doctor Inferno on Wed 08 Dec 2010, 1:48 am

This guide will give you easy instructions on how to remove Security Shield for free.


What is Security Shield? (Information)


Security Shield (Security Shield) is a fake security software which uses fraudulent strategies by displaying false or exaggerated security issues on your computer rather than any legitimate ones to coerce you into purchasing their software.

Security Shield will constantly display bogus warning messages, telling you that your computer is infected. Security Shield uses misleading ways to win your trust and make you actually believe your computer is compromised with viruses, spyware or trojans. It will later suggest that you purchase a copy of it to remove the infections as part of the scam. Their bogus antispyware or antivirus database is totally incapable of performing any removal of viruses or other declared functions.

Security Shield is from the same family of rogue software as Security Tool.





Follow these instructions to continue:

You have to start computer in Safe Mode by doing the following:

  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, keep tapping F8.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode with Networking.




1. Please download this official version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.




2. Install Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware by double clicking on mbam-setup




3. Follow the prompts. Make sure that Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware are checked. Then click finish.




4. Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware will automatically update itself after the installation, click the OK button to close that box and you will now be at the main program Window as shown below.

If you are having problems with the updater, you can use this link to manually update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware with the latest database. Make sure that Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is closed before installing the update.


5. Close All opened Windows, Programs, File or Folders.


6. Make sure you are on the Scanner tab. Select Perform quick scan then click the Scan button as shown below.




7. Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware will now start scanning your computer for infected files as shown below.




8. When the scan is finished a message box will appear, click OK to continue.




9. Click Show Results.




10. You will now be presented with a screen showing you the malware infections like shown below. Yours may look different depending on the infection you have.


11. Click on Remove selected.




12. When removing the files, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware may require you to restart the computer in order to do a complete removal. If it displays a message stating that it needs to restart, click Yes.




13. After that you can close the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware window, your computer is now cleaned from the malware infection.

I have done this and I guess it it was effective because Security Shield does not pop out anymore but now my internet does not work on my desktop. I'm using a USB wifi on my desktop...if I view my network it says "network unplugged" but on my icon to the lower right of my monitor it says I'm connected? Please help!
